Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (frozen is fine)
1 cup salsa (I used homemade salsa but could use jar)
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 packet taco seasoning (I used a scoop or two from a large Costco jar)
1/2 cup sour cream (I used greek yogurt instead)

Place chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker. Sprinkle taco seasoning on chicken. In a bowl, combine soup and salsa. Pour over chicken. Cook on high 4 hours. Shred chicken with two forks and stir in sour cream. Serve on tortillas or as desired.

Toffee Dip with Fruit

My friend made a simply delicious fruit dip for our Super Bowl party tonight.

1 block of cream cheese (light is okay but not fat free)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 bag toffee pieces (you can find them by the chocolate chips)

Fresh fruit (in slices or chunks)

Mix together and serve with sliced fruit.  She served it with apple slices, strawberries, and pineapple chunks.  When we ran out of fruit I put out some graham crackers with it and that was yummy too.

It is addictive so watch out.
